Zoot Suit- Chavez Ravine

"A fleet of twenty taxicabs carrying some two hundred servicemen pulled out of the naval armory in Chavez Ravine tonight and assembled a task force that invaded the eastside barrio" (pg 79)

Within the text, the riot is treated like an actual war. The navy assembles a "fleet" in order to "invade" the eastside barrio. This shows the tension that existed between the Pachucos and the Whites in the entire city came to a very violent end. After the explanation of this assembly, we see El Pachuco stripped of his zoot suit by the navy men.
